Other images in Photoshop Challenge (S3-05-E)


I finally found a use for the 'Day of Peace' flags props issued by Maxis.  I made a lot, seen in the upper-left, with a plaza featuring all the flags.  The background was left transparent to represent some unknown dimension SimPlanet would exist in.  Just as I was taking the picture in SC4 a little blue car like mine came down the middle street in front of the humanities building.   Makes  me wonder, am I creating a simulation, or is it creating me.

Very unique! I have yet to see anything else like this. If I may, how did you pull this effect off?

Below is the raw image from the SC4 camera, then I ran it through several filters, changing contrast, color balance, adding some shadows and touching up some areas, etc.  First I used a perspective effect to get the angles receding to one-point perspective, then finally I used an effects filter simply called 'circle' on PSP 6.  The perspective and circle combined made it look like a ball.    Now how do I get out of this thing?
